Eckstein Hall Hours; Use Your MUID to Access the Third and Fourth Floors

Between now and May 9, Eckstein Hall is open from 7:00 a.m. until 12 a.m. (midnight) seven days per week.

With final exams approaching, the number of Marquette students entering and using the building will increase. In anticipation of this increase and in preparation for the summer break, floors 3 and 4 will be accessible only to the Law School Community from April 15 through August 18. Law students, faculty, and staff will need to use their MUID to gain access to these floors.

As a reminder, the building is open to the public; please do not leave your personal items unattended, even for a moment.

Resources for Food Insecurity

It is important to us that all Marquette students have, at a minimum, the basic resources that allow them to focus on their education. There are many resources on and off campus to support students who may not have enough to eat at one time or another.

If you or a someone you know is in this position, we encourage you to check out the Backpack Program, which provides groceries to Marquette students on a one-time or weekly basis. For more information about the the Backpack Program and other available resources to students, please click here. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Backpack Program ( or Dean Fodor

Law School Graduation Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed to assist with the 2019 Law School Hooding Ceremony, which will be held on Saturday, May 18, at the Miller High Life Theater (500 W. Kilbourn Ave.).

In past years, second and first year students have assisted with the hooding ceremony as ushers, greeters, program distributors, and assistants to the graduates and staff. Students that have helped in the past have enjoyed the experience of being able to see their classmates’ graduate and to be a part of their special day. Not to mention, you will get to see in advance what the hooding ceremony is all about!

The time commitment for the entire event (including set-up, greeting, ushering, and the event itself) is 3:00 p.m. to approximately 8:30 p.m.
If you are interested in being a part of your classmate’s graduation on May 18, please let Carol Dufek know as soon as possible.
